MOSCOW, April 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin late on Tuesday held a meeting devoted to topical issues of the country’s economy development.
Taking part in the meeting were Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Kremlin administration chief Sergei Ivanov, presidential aide Andrei Belousov, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev, as well as head of the Russian Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina and former Finance Minister, head of the Committee of Civil Initiatives, Alexei Kudrin.
On April 19, at a meeting with the prime minister in Novo-Ogarevo, the Russian head of state urged the government to focus on problem aspects of the economy development for their solution. Putin in general expressed satisfaction with the work of the Cabinet, which in difficult conditions managed to maintain economic growth.
“The Russian government, in the rather difficult world economy conditions, managed to maintain positive development dynamics,” he said. “And despite the fact that we observed stagnation in many European countries and even reduction to zero of the previous indicators, some even went into the red, the Russian government yet attained positive growth, positive dynamics.” The president, in particular, noted that “all the social obligations to the population were fulfilled.”
